The historic portion of the hotel is one of the most beautiful Renaissance buildings in Spain. Be sure to ask the concierge about the guided tour of the adjoining church and to walk around the cloister garden. Our room (no. 360) was spacious and comfortable on a quiet floor in the historic wing with the Plateresque style façade overlooking the... More

If you wish to stay in a place older than the United States and beautiful enough to rival the amount of photos you take of any tourist attraction.....stay here. I highly recommend upgrading from their budget rooms. It's not much more, but well worth it if you enjoy comforts in your room.

We stayed for two nights on a driving tour and the building, its public rooms and the staff made it quite memorable. Although the reception area was busy at check-in, we were through very quickly and the staff had time to explain a few things to us about the building, etc. There are several rooms and areas to explore, not...

Stayed at the hotel on a bike trip. It's more of a business hotel that felt a little impersonal. We were booked for 2 nights and only stayed for 1. Nothing particularly wrong, just no atmosphere or soul.

This is a very fancy hotel that was part of a monastery. It has been catering to pilgrims for centuries. It’s a bit out of town but one of those iconic accommodations like a castle that makes it worthwhile. The staffs is helpful, the rooms are a bit past their former glory. The grounds are museum in their own right.... More

Leon is steeped in history, and so is the building our hotel was in. Very fine service in all hotel phases, good and varied food in the dining room, plus a fabulous shower in our lovely room.

16th century monastery converted to modern parador hotel. All the usual elements of a monastery: cloistered courtyard, carved woodwork, vaulted ceilings and a church next door. Modern pilgrims can expect all the usual modern amenities. I believe this is the parador where Martin Sheen and his fellow pilgrims stay for one night while they are walking The Way of St.... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Hostal de San Marcos is one of the most extraordinary historic hotels on the Old Continent. Construction of the building was begun in the 16th century, together with the bridge across the River Bernesga in the outskirts of León. It was built to house the peninsula's western headquarters for the Military Order of Saint James. The project was financed by King Ferdinand the Catholic. The magnificent hotel is a museum of stately function rooms, with a spectacular cloister and chapter house; spacious, elegant guest rooms; a library; and a wonderful restaurant that offers beautifully prepared traditional cuisine. ... more   less
